This was our first trip to Tybee Island. We enjoyed Spanky's lunch fair and we were surprised by the low prices. Service was friendly and informative.

Food was very good. I was actually impressed. Near the Pier so before or after you could take a walk on the pier. The area was spread out so you did not feel that you was on top of people eating .

We go here on every trip to Tybee. The crab cakes are delicious. They're so big my husband and I always have to split one. The wait is never long, the staff is very friendly and the prices are right.

We went to lunch here on the suggestion of one of the clerks in a nearby store. It did not disappoint us and there were 8 of us in total. The waitress was cheeky and we had a great time with her. My daughter states...More
